Overdeck Family Foundation was founded in 2011 by John and Laura Overdeck with the goal of providing all children the opportunity to unlock their potential. We focus exclusively on enhancing education, funding efforts both inside and outside of school in the areas of early childhood, informal STEM education, and K-9 programs that include supporting educators and student-centered learning environments.
Our grantmaking and strategic support focus on unlocking innovation, evidence, and growth opportunities for organizations and researchers that are committed to accelerating key academic and socioemotional outcomes for all children. We fund both direct impact organizations and ecosystem efforts that clear the path to scale for our grantees and the work that they do.
The Foundation is seeking a full-time Business Analyst to support the Program Director as he clarifies the Foundation’s programmatic vision and manages the investment teams to strategically source and invest in early and growth stage organizations that are expanding educational opportunities for children across the United States. The Business Analyst will join the Overdeck Family Foundation as we are growing our annual funding output and seeking to evolve our supports to more effectively meet our grantees’ needs and goals, which focus on supporting innovation, evidence building, and growth. The core problems this person will solve will include supporting the Program Director to maximize his effectiveness, designing and implementing a clear vision for data congruency on the program team, and hypothesizing and building out the most effective and efficient non-monetary supports for our grantees.

Who You Are:
A smart, eager learner. You take a nuanced and rigorous approach to your work, both able to act on well-informed hypotheses and willing to change your mind. You use your critical thinking and quantitative analysis skills to see patterns, guide smart decision-making, and evaluate opportunities.
An operator. You are able to make plans to effectively map and execute complex projects with multiple stakeholders. You are able to autonomously manage yourself and the actions of others who do not report into you with very little oversight. Most importantly, you love this type of work.
Highly relational. You are able to work well with OFF staff members at all levels because you are kind, thoughtful and curious. You enjoy interacting with others and would quickly grow to be a strong representative of OFF to external audiences.
A data guru. You are able to adeptly understand a problem, identify potential solutions, narrow those solutions through cost benefit analysis, and engineer data driven pilots to test the strongest solutions. You are able to analyze complex datasets to tell clear and accurate stories. You are able to create dashboards to tell clear data stories and manage others to capture and house data to ensure those dashboards are accurate.
A values driven and empathetic human. You operate with a high level of self-awareness, humility, and emotional intelligence and you value the same in your colleagues. You engage in conflict confidently and with kindness. You are excited about working in an environment where complex problems are being considered. You are able to articulate and navigate tensions with an orientation towards understanding and valuing multiple perspectives.
